When back pain strikes, it may seem like nothing in your life will ever be the same again. You may experience unexpected sensations like shooting leg pain or arm pain. Sitting or standing for long periods or even walking up and down the stairs may become unbearable. Here at Newark Pain and Rehab Center, we refuse to let your ability to live a full and active life be compromised. We use safe, natural, non-invasive treatments to relieve this pain and give you back your life.
Traditional medical care relies on prescription painkillers to 'mask' your pain. While you may experience temporary relief, this relief is all too fleeting. Many pain patients find themselves dependent on painkillers to function every day. In fact, unintentional overdose of painkillers such as Oxycontin and Vicodin is a leading cause of preventable death for pain patients. Surgeries can be equally dangerous. Recovery is a lengthy and painful process, and many surgeries fail to fully relieve pain, so patients end up relying on prescription painkillers.
We believe there is a safer and better way to help patients in the East Orange, Ironbound, Irvington, and Newark communities. Our chiropractor, Dr. Vincent Saraceno, is committed to treating the underlying cause of your pain. Many cases of back pain are the result of a herniated disc, or structural problems due to sciatica, arthritis or skeletal irregularities. Chiropractic adjustment can naturally restore your body's alignment, including a full range of movement and motion. In severe cases, we offer safe manipulation under anesthesia. By fixing the underlying problem, you can live a full, pain-free life - without being dependent on medication.
We also offer other non-surgical therapies including massage therapy, acupuncture and physical therapy that relieve pain and promote healing. Targeted massage treatments stimulate blood flow to the muscles, promoting healing and reducing pent-up tension and stress. Acupuncture uses thin needles to stimulate pressure points in the body, which also promotes natural healing and reduces arm pain and leg pain. Physical therapy exercise help patients heal faster after an injury, restoring a full range of motion to your body.
